World Food Championships

Bites. Bourbon. Barbecue. World Food Championships (WFC) is planning a big party in Dallas on November 6! Called Bourb’N’Que, this event will take place at Fair Park and will feature 10 of some of the best pitmasters in the country whipping up competition ribs that highlight different American flavor profiles.

From Al Pastor Style (pineapple/chili) to Ozarks Style (cooked over live coals hot and fast) to Pirate Style (bacon wrapped raspberry chipotle ribs) and everything in between, Bourb’N’Que attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite flavor through a special People’s Choice process.

Each pitmaster will pair the ribs with bourbon samples provided by Bulleit, Sixty Men and more for attendees to sip and savor throughout the event.

Bourb’N’Que is open to guests 21+. Click here to buy tickets.
